Executive Director of the Bureau of Public Safety (BPS), Nana Yaw Akwada says the number of positive COVID-19 cases recorded in Ghana have never in a bit increased.
The bureau believes Ghana has always had a large number of COVID-19 positive cases and that, “the actual figures we have now are up to 5 times the numbers available to the public”.
“As the Bureau of Public Safety, we believe the number of people with the virus are not increasing. It has always been there and at higher proportions. As a country, we have now been able to rope it in now and are actually getting to know the real numbers”, he said.
Nana Yaw Akwada made this revelation in an interview with Samuel Eshun, host of the Happy Morning Show.
“We are of a certain mind that the virus is very here in Ghana and has infected a lot of people than we know. The only fortunate thing for us is that the virus doesn’t affect Africans as critically as other races and that has saved us. The virus is in here and it is not now on the rise”, he mentioned.
Ghana’s active cases of COVID-19 per data provided by the Ghana Health Service (GHS) is 1,330. Over the period, Ghana has had 56,421 confirmed cases and 338 deaths.
